Disney World

Orange County officials on Monday gave credit to Orlando theme parks. So far, there’s been no coronavirus outbreaks linked to either Walt Disney World or Universal Studios Orlando.

Last week brought the sixth consecutive week of declines in the rate of new coronavirus cases and the lowest figure in two months, with just 7.58% of tests positive for the infection.

“There is a clear, sustained deceleration of the pandemic in our county,” said Dr. Raul Pino, the local health officer for the Florida Department of Health in Orange County.

Monday also brought the lowest single-day increase in new cases statewide since June 23. Florida reported 4,155 new infections and 91 additional deaths. None of the deaths occurred in Orange, Osceola, Seminole or Lake counties.

Only about 49,000 test results were reported Monday, 25,000 fewer than the day prior and far fewer than most days.

Orange County has maintained a daily positivity rate under 10% for two weeks. The measure is considered a key indicator of how much transmission of the virus is occurring within a community with less than 5% being the target.

“Our numbers are all in the single digits. This is really encouraging news for our students as they go back to school,” Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings said.
